Description: These DC powered heating pads are perfect for near-body heating applications. They get warm to the touch but not too hot. Simply apply 5VDC to the wire leads and within minutes, the pad will begin to warm up.
These heating pads are constructed using a mesh of Polyester filament and Micro Metal Conductive Fiber folded into a protective Polyimide Film. The fact that these are low power, flexible and draw little power makes them ideal for things like hand-warmers and other heated garments. Maybe hook up a microcontroller and some sensors and make your own climate-controlled hoodie?

Ive been Using them to make a heated jacket using a voltage regulator to control the temperature maximum output.voltages above 5v produce a great deal of near body heating to the point of reaching temperatures that could cause slight burns if cantact with skin happened. Tested run time with a 4ahr battery found it lasted for well over 2hrs
Works as it shold
